Coach Britten Nickel
Asst. Coach Brigan Barber
Coach Britten is excited to return for her 6th season coaching club at EMV! Before coaching, Coach Britten was at two-year varsity letterman at Saginaw High School, where she played defensive specialist, in addition to playing club at EMV for four seasons, from 14s to 17s in a variety of positions. This led to the opportunity of being able to coach club during the spring of her senior year of high school, beginning her coaching experience at a very young age. Since the beginning of her coaching journey, Britten has coached girls anywhere from the ages of 12 to 17, double-qualifying for the Girls' Junior National Championship while assisting Coach Chris during the 2018-2019 season. This success and the growth she sees in her players from beginning to end of each season make her excited to return to the EMV family for the 2020-21 season
This is my second year coaching after playing competitively for 8 years. I started playing club ball at 11 years old, i played as an outside as well as a defensive specialist and went to nationals multiple times. I was a three year varsity letterman at boswell high school, where I played defensive specialist and graduated in 2018. While playing at boswell I participated in multiple state playoff games all four years of my high school career including making school history by going to the regional tournament in 2017. I now attend TCU as a movement science major! Since deciding against playing in college, I am so excited to get back into volleyball, share my knowledge with players at EMV!
